Deciding on a major in university will influence the course of your university years and potentially your entire adult life. Making this important choice before you enter university can be intimidating since you do not know what to expect from the pre-decided major. Even after entering university, students lack confidence towards their major and delay their graduation to have a gap semester or year to participate in self-organized international language programs or language test preparation courses. This shows that university's conventional electives curriculum has failed to equipstudents to face ever accelerating specialization. The unique Undeclared and Exploratory Major program (Global & Interdisciplinary Studies) at PKNU removes the abovementioned uncertainty and fear and offers complete overhaul of conventional curriculum by offering freedom and flexibility to explore a variety of majors and career options before making up your mind with a complement of various international programs. You will be able to obtain a full range of information about individual majors at PKNUand constant counselling before you are required to select a major. Unlike department-based undeclared major programs, the Division of Global & Interdisciplinary Studies offers freedom to choose majors among all the offered programs at PKNU which includes colleges of Humanities and Social Sciences, Natural Sciences, Business Administration, Engineering, Fisheries Sciences, Environmental and Marine Sciences and Technology. Also, you will be ablt to combine two or more majors to form a multidisciplinary study which may become invaluable in today's merging-of-technology economy. Furthermore, students who enroll in the Global & Interdisciplinary Studies program will gain priority access to PKNU's diverse international grograms such as international exchange programs, short-term foreign language programs, and international internship programs.
